Friday 22nd October

On Friday the 22nd there are yet more exciting activities on offer to those attending the conference in person. Themed around HBO’s incredible Game of Thrones, which was filmed across 25 different locations in Northern Ireland, there are two exclusive tours showcasing these locations and giving an insight into the making of the series. BEYOND delegates can choose between the VIP ‘Hang out with Hodor tour which showcases the mythical lands of Westeros and Essos with Flip Robinson, body double for “Hodor” and “The Mountain”, and the Winterfell Tour in which you visit the castle and Demesne, taking in the beautiful surrounding landscapes and far-reaching views across the lough along the way.

All of these amazing opportunities have been made possible by Future Screens NI who are supporting this years’ conference alongside UKRI.

See you in Belfast!
